Choosing Equipment

Choosing the right equipment for increased independence in the home

At Gong Life Care Solutions we are aware that choosing the correct piece of equipment to support your mobility, comfort or safety in the home – or that of someone you’re caring for – can be difficult. You probably know the kind of thing you’re looking for, but where to go to see or to buy equipment is not always obvious, and choosing online can be confusing. There are many factors to consider, such as a person’s cognitive function, their lower or upper body strength, their weight, vision, judgement, the living environment at home, and so on. You also want to know that the equipment you are interested in is of high quality and safe to use.

If you are a bit concerned about choosing equipment or an assistant device, do your research, but also consider talking to an expert such as an Occupational Therapist, for help with ideas about equipment selection, and perhaps later for training on use of the item you purchase, eg if you are learning to use crutches for the first time, or changing the type of crutches you use.

Gong Life Care Solutions is an Australian owned and operated business based in Wollongong, NSW.

All of our products are of exceptional design, and they are certified by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and European Conformity (CE), so you can be confident about your purchase in quality and safety terms.

Our products are designed with both the user and the carer in mind, and we’re the sole Australian suppliers of our range of remarkable products.

Our products are designed to be strong, light and practical. Some are foldable for easy storage or transporting, such as our KMINA indoor rollator / wheely-walker, and our STRONGBACK foldable posture-support wheelchair.  Check our website for more information:
